Five Mile Recreation Area

Next Pause Play
The Five Mile Recreation Area is a great place for a picnic, playing in Big Chico Creek, or just enjoying general outdoor fun. Five Mile has many large Sycamore and Valley Oak trees providing shade on the grassy picnic areas. There are eight picnic tables, 3 barbecues, a drinking fountain, and restrooms at Five Mile. It is located in Upper Bidwell Park but some call this area Middle Bidwell Park. There is a little bridge across Big Chico Creek for pedestrians to walk on and a deep enough spot under the bridge for swimming in the creek. Five Mile is just a quick walk from Hooker Oak Park. You can have your picnic on the north side of the Five Mile Recreation Area by driving in on Wildwood Avenue or you can drive in from Centennial Avenue to access the main area south of the creek.
